Brewed with ten different types of malt, and blended together with Scottish heather honey, it is a pantheon to the gods of intricacy and nuance; a beer that celebrates a confluence of ideas. History is written by the victors, and Dogma is Scotch Ale triumphant; evolved.
Complex, indulgent and encapsulating, Dogma gives more than a cursory nod to history, to make you ponder the very nature of beer itself.

Emeister84 (2084) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Aromas of toffee, cherries, and molasses. Brown with golden highlights. Sweet and savory, with some earthy, licorice-like flavors. Medium body, very low carbonation, and finishes sweet but not cloying.

lello4ever (675) - ITALY - SEP 22, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 Marrone molto scuro, schiuma marroncina ampia e cremosa. Al naso davvero un buon aroma di malto tostato, dark fruits e cioccolato. Bevuta ottima con malto, caramello, cioccolato, tostatura. Dolce senza contralto di amaro. Abbastanza cremosa ma dal corpo medio, beverina. Carbonazione medio bassa. Ottima scotch Ale.

From bottle. Another wonderful drop from Brewdog. Pours dark with a rich head that quickly dissipates. Flavours of bitter cocoa, charred barley and coca cola strike initially with a pleasent bitterness to follow carrying sweet, almost burnt caramel notes to finish. Mouth feel is oily and thick and coats the palate. Fantastic ale.

cmacklin (850) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 4, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a red hue and a medium, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and caramel. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, honey, caramel, coffee and dark fruit with a dry, mildly bitter, warming alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Quite nice, very tasty.

Enteogenisk (152) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 (33 cl bottle in wine glass.) Pours a rather dark chestnut brown with a thin and fine-looking head. Aroma has toffee/caramel and chocolate in it and the texture is really awesome. Not all convinced by the taste though which (much like the aroma) is rather thin. Feels like there?s going to happen something great but it doesn?t. Sort of ends with a chocolate caramel grainy kick that lingers for quite a while! Decided to pair it with a dram of Auchentoshan 12 :)

jmgreenuk (7675) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 28, 2016
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Changkat, Kuala, Lumpur. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head and some clingy lace. The aroma is rich red berry fruit, alcohol, some malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a big fruity, light burning alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Bottle pours out a dark brown topped with a small head. nose is roast some light chocolate plenty of spice and some earthy hop notes. Taste is more of the light chocolate roast a nice spice combo and the earth notes.

33cl bottle. Dark brown pour with thin brown head, no lacing. Aromas of caramel, roast and coffee. Taste is sweet, bitter and full-bodied. Low carbonation, oily palate. Aftertaste is sweet and warm. Good beer, a bit too sweet for my taste.

Une belle robe noire encre, un corps onctueux, des arômes subtils de miel, douceur, épices et des saveurs agréables faites de douceur, de miel, de fleurs et d’épices. Plus pas mal avec mention spéciale pour le nez surpassant le reste.

Aroma’s really spil out the glass. Sweet, boozy, some hops. Palate is long and dry. Rich, robust. Drinks like a real sipper- thought it was up around 9%. Delicious
